Most Rev. Edmund Stonor (1831–1912) was a prominent British Roman Catholic archbishop.

Born into the recusancy on 2 April 1831 at Stonor, England, the ancestral home of the Stonor family, he was the son of Thomas Stonor, 3rd Lord Camoys and Frances (née Towneley). Rev. Edmund Stonor held the office of Canon of St John Lateran, and later, as Archbishop of Trapezus.


On 13 April 1856, aged 25, he was ordained a priest. On 11 February 1889, aged 57, he was appointed as Titular Archbishop of Trapezus and ordained later that month. He was one of the episcopal consecrators of William Henry O'Connell, the future Cardinal Archbishop of Boston.

He was the "energetic, devoted chief chaplain" of the English-speaking Papal Zoaves (see dedication in Two Years in the Pontifical Zoaves by Joseph Powell, London: R. Washbourne, 1871).


Archbishop Stonor died on 28 February 1912, aged 80.
